At Nechells we value the importance of learning beyond the classroom. As such we offer a range of rich and broad activities which enable our pupils to learn and practise skills which will prepare them for later life.

We provide a range of opportunities for visitors to visit the Academy or for pupils to go on educational visits outside of the Academy. These are linked to the learning which takes place in each year group and children will make use of the educational visits in their subsequent learning.

Enrichment Overview

In the summer term, we also offer a residential visit to all our year 5 pupils to provide them with an opportunity to learn social skills, experience living in a different location, develop confidence and self-esteem, build independence and resilience. This experience forms part of the transition work which takes place, preparing pupils for their final year in primary school.

All educational visits and visitors are heavily subsidised by the Academy. We therefore ask for a much smaller contribution towards the costs of these activities.

We also visit different places of worship throughout the school; providing pupils with opportunities to see how different religions and faiths worship and developing pupils mutual respect and tolerance of those with and without religious faith.

Extra- Curricular Activities

Throughout the year we offer extra-curricular activities for physical development; including sports activities, creative activities; from the arts to crafts.
